The Creatures Return!!!!!!!!!!!!
A cult 60's anime was remade into a hit TV drama and now it's coming to the silver screen!

Introduction :
No one knows when and where these creatures were born.

In murky silence, a cell divided and created 3 lives.

They are neither human nor beast.

But their hideous appearances belied a sense of justice as strong as the most noble man.

"Someday we'll become humans!"

They long to be human, a longing never to be fulfilled.


HUMANOID MONSTER BEM was originally an animated TV series broadcast in 1968.

Three subhuman creatures, Bem, Bela and Belo protect humans from evil creatures in the hope of becoming normal humans one day...

Nationwide adults were shocked and kids were delighted by the unprecedented concept of the hideous heroes never being accepted by humans.

A TV drama series retold the Bem stories in October 2011, 43 years after the original cartoon and was eagerly received. And now Bem is the motion picture event of 2012.

Story :
In murky silence, a cell divided and created 3 lives.

Being less than human, they called themselves Bem, Bela and Belo.

Their hideous appearances belied their noble and strong sense of justice. Another subhuman creature, The Man with No Name, was created at the same time as Bem, Bela and Belo. After defeating this evil creature, Bem, Bela and Belo accepted their role as the protectors of humans. The price they paid for the decision was to give up their wishes to become humans. Then the three leave their human friends and disappear.

Roaming the world, they arrive at a town where residents are being terrorized by mysterious crimes. As Bem, Bela and Belo investigate the mystery, they are confronted by their nemesis whose mysterious identity leads to a horrible secret. And it seems that there is another way for Bem, Bela and Belo to finally become humans!?

But first they must fight the nemesis...for their existence is at stake.
